The government is undertaking a review of the UK listing regime in light of Brexit. The objective of the Review is to propose reforms to the UK listings regime that will attract the most innovative and successful firms and help companies access the finance they need to grow.
The Listings Review, which will be chaired by Lord Hill, has published a call for evidence. Specific areas where views are sought are:
- free float requirements;
- track record requirements for admission to premium listing;
- dual and secondary listing.
It also asks whether there are other issues the Review should consider and whether there are any non-regulatory, non-legislative actions that could the UK take to promote the use of public equity markets.
The call for evidence closes on 5 January 2021.
